Castle and Beckett, Nathan Fillion and Stana Katic by InspiredByYouArt Castle and Beckett, Nathan Fillion and Stana Katic by InspiredByYouArt
Colored pencil practice with the Castle cast#5, Nathan Fillion and Stana Katic

Nathan's head is bigger than Stana's in real life of course, but I think it's too big in this picture by a little bit. The spot on his darker cheek is a bit messed up too but I had practically erased the grain of the paper away at that point so can't do anything more to it without starting over and I really didn't want to do that considering it's just for fun/practice. All things considered, I'm okay with it for now.

Coloursoft/Primascolor Verithin on 14 x 11 bristol (2013)

Wow, this is so good! Your shading of the skin and hair is great. However, I do think the shadow on the side of his nose is a little too dark. Prehaps in the future you could lighten it up a bit? When people light for tv shows and portraits they always include a fill light to lighten up the side of the nose because it can be very distracting to the viewer. I do like the shadow on Stana's face; it's softer and not as dark. I also really love the detail you put into their eyes and facial expressions. A fantastic job!
What do you think?

I love the way you rendered the skin colors on his nose and the eyes are expressive in both of them. You're going the right way in your practice :) you need to practice a bit more to draw wavy hair to give more flow to it. Anyway, I couldn't do better, so, congratulations :D

Very true on the hair, I find it very difficult in any medium. Thank you :)

Amazing! And yay, you purchased Prismacolor Verithin! :D What did you think of these pencils? Did they help you out a bit? Man, I love Beckett's face in this picture!

Thanks! I do like the pencils quite a bit, they were helpful for the details. I also grabbed and extra primsacolor black and chocolate color which came in handy too. All the Primsacolor seem to lay down color a little more smoothly. Probably get more down the road.

Thanks on Beckett's face, I was going for her amused "You're a dork but I love you" look.
